The Cabinet is responsible for all the functions and duties of the District Council which are specified in legislation, and which are not specifically reserved to the Council or any Committee elsewhere in this constitution.
The individual members of the Cabinet have personal portfolios, as allocated by the Leader, and exercise the powers and duties of the Cabinet within those areas, subject to the detailed rules on Access to Information Procedures (Part 4(2)) of the Council's Constitution.
Each of the Portfolios indicated take primary responsibility in their individual areas and work with other Cabinet members, officers and partners to ensure that cross cutting themes are being communicated effectively in all policies and projects and across all services. In doing this, Cabinet Members may set up appropriate groups, but should ensure that Democratic Services are aware that the group has been set up and the composition of its membership.
